Thread: Paul McCartney interview about Coachella

  1. #1

    Default Paul McCartney interview about Coachella

    here it is, short but sweet
    http://www.maccablog.co.uk/news.php?news=5520


    1. Have you spent any time in the Palm Springs area? Does the desert inspire you?

    I love the desert intensely but have not spent any time in the Palm Springs area, although we did shoot some pictures for the Venus And Mars album cover in northern California in the desert. The desert I know best is Arizona and I love it. I love being there.

    2. Why at this point in your illustrious career, did you decide to perform at a U.S. festival?

    Because I was asked and it seemed like a great idea. I like that it’s in the desert, I like that it’s the first festival of the year and everyone I talk to told me it was the coolest festival.

    3. Will The Fireman be getting a live outing?

    We are hoping to bring The Fireman along and persuade him to do a couple of numbers.

    4. How do you feel about playing to a crowd as diverse as the Coachella audience? What do you hope the crowd will walk away with?

    Their feet! I like diverse audiences; I kind of get them whether I like it or not – my audience often has a big generational span. The spirit at a festival event is very free and so fits with my way of thinking.

    5. Are you planning anything different or special for this performance?

    Yeah! We will do a few things we haven’t done before and change some of the songs from our normal set.

    6. In 2004 you warmed up to Glastonbury with a European tour, how have you been warming up for Coachella?

    By playing for David Lynch’s ‘Change Begins Within’ foundation in NYC.

    7. Do you feel in the festival setting that there’s a certain level of camaraderie among the performers?

    Yeah I think performers and audience all know it’s a party and we are all part of something special – it’s a coming together of like-minds which is always pretty exciting.

    8. What are your expectations from this show?

    I expect to have a great evening out and groove with ‘ma people’.

    frankly the guy has always been a huge fucking dork, IMO. Harrison i'd be excited about (yeah yeah, pretending for a moment that he isn't dead). I'll watch, but just because, and AFTER the Presets are done.

    anyone who thinks this set isnt going to be amazing is pure retarded.

    they are most likely the same people that said roger waters was going to be "boring and lame"

    For those that missed it, here is a shot demonstrating how 'boring' Roger Waters was last year



    It was a drag! And trust me Macca will be no better!

    ^^ Seriously. No one can say with a straight face that this was boring. Maybe for lack of vocabulary, but boring it was not.

    The people dismissing Paul will be the first ones to later brag to their friends that they saw a Beatle live.

    This is big. We are all lucky to be a part of it.

    So wait... i'm being accused of thinking Roger Waters is boring now? How'd you guys make that leap?? I loved the Waters set. McCartney's still a dork.

    Right, because Roger Waters' whole career being over the top psychedelic showmanship is entirely transferable to McCartney playing Hold Your Hand for three hours.

    I thought that was Devin the Non-Dude that said that about Waters! I think you're cool. We're all good. Peace out.
